Showcase 4

Showcase 4

Abstract Swan, by Christina.

I miss Christina. She's a dear friend, originally from Melbourne, and now in Holland. As well as taking gorgeous pictures, she's a talented botanist, and one of the sweetest people I know. She's also the person who, when I was complaining about the problems of crutches in the rain, found me my miracle poncho (it's actually a Dutch design for bike riders, but it works well for cripples, too) - and replaced it when some bastard stole it.

She says: "The picture is of a swan on a lake near my old house in Enschede. I just loved the feathers against the dark water. I like taking photos of things where it takes a little while to figure out what it is if you don't have any information. "

I've been meaning to say for ages how much I enjoy your photos. I think it was Christina who pointed the journal out to me and now we've come full circle with you showcasing a photo of hers I didn't know existed. Thank you!

(I love your photos of food especially... mmm, chocolate!)

Hello, you - congrats on the wedding! Thanks for popping by - it's good to see you. And thanks for the compliment, too.


Mark-the-maker of chocolate says thanks, btw - and says if you send me your current snail-mail addy he'll send you some choccy.

I do love this photo...it reminds me of "The Great Wave", except with more swan

(and yes, I'll happily send chocolate, it is my Willy Wonkery way...)
